I suppose I should have posted this lovely cover last month, but to be honest I’m not sure where August went. It certainly was a fast-moving month. And even though this is a beautiful summer frock, why can’t one wear it in September?
The truth is, I no longer care about the idea of changing clothes with the changing seasons. I’ve known for a long time that I was moving toward a year-round wardrobe, but when I went to pull out a light sweater from my off-season storage, I opened the trunk to find it practically empty except for one Pendleton plaid shirt bought on clearance at the outlet this spring and woolen gloves, hats and scarves. All my sweaters were already in my closet.
It helps that I wear the same colors – blue, white, black, red – pretty much all the year. For winter I add plaid and cashmere. For summer it is shorts and sandals. Of course it helps that I lead a very casual lifestyle where work clothes are not required.
And even though it is after Labor Day, my white jeans are still in my closet, and will remain there indefinitely.
